Ganeti Web Manager versions 0.8 and above allow you to choose whether users can create their own accounts, or need to be added by an administrator.
The default setting for registration is open, which means that visitors to your site’s login page can follow a link from the login page to create their own accounts.
The “Not a member?” link takes the user to the registration page:
The user is emailed a password and a confirmation link, then has an account on your site. Users can also be added by a site admin by selecting the users link in the admin toolbar, then using the Add User button to reach the user creation form.
In some contexts, users should not be able to create their own accounts.
To implement this, simply change the
config.yml file to False:
# Whether users should be able to create their own accounts. # False if accounts can only be created by admins. ALLOW_OPEN_REGISTRATION = False
